Frequently Asked Questions

We are an AS9100 approved organisation acting as a sub-contractor to a POA organisation, so will be seeking to apply for our own POA. Will this course help us in understanding the requirements?

Yes, understanding the eligibility criteria is a fundamental step in your organisation's approach to achieving your own POA. This course will demystify the regulatory requirements for you which will in turn allow you to shape your transition plan.

As a Responsible Manager, I want to improve my understanding of the role of the POA, the interfaces with the DOA and the regulations that define subcontractor controls. Is this course suitable for me?

Yes, this course will specifically address the above. The points you raise in your question are those that are most often raised by authorities during their audits of Part 21 Subpart G organisations.

I am aware that changes will be coming to the regulation. It always seems that I am informed of these when it's too late. Will this course enable me to understand how these changes take place and discuss what changes are coming so I can make better informed decisions to help my organisation?

Yes, understanding the change process is essential, especially understanding the potential impact on your organisation. Understanding how this works will allow you to be able to plan and manage the implementation of the change in a more structured and informed way.
